Subject: RE: very early corn hybrids--clarification

Central MN
Maybe ask the owners if you could just open up the corn field for more opportunities for hunting. Instead of having no corn or a solid field of corn. If you have an 8 row head, take all the end rows off and then take 16 rows and leave 16 rows across the field.
As for early corn. I have no dryer so I’ve been testing 3 years now. Same everything for planting, spraying, fertility. Planted 72/73 day GT RR vs latest and greatest 87 and an 86 day agri-sure artesian. We’ve been in a drought bad the last 2 years so might be some issue.
Year 1: 72 vs 87, within a couple bushels. 72 higher test weight, drier by 2 points.
Year 2: 72 vs 86, 72 was 9 bushels better, 6-8 lb test weight heavier, and 14% for 72 vs 18% moisture on the 86. dry year but a few timely rains and cooler
Year 3: 73 vs 86, no longer could get the 72 day. pretty much a wash. Only difference was 73 was a point drier. 30.8 bpa average for both. No rain, hot at wrong times.
Next year I have some leftover 73 day seed for another trial. But can’t find anyone except pioneer that has early seed. Seems to be 77 is the earliest now.
